Nobuyoshi Araki Shoots G-Dragon With Black-and-White Punk Intimacy
G-Dragon models his own brand, PEACEMINUSONE, and AMBUSH.
Cult-revered photographer Nobuyoshi Araki drops into youth culture unexpectedly again with Korean rapper G-Dragon on a Dazed shoot. His last was a Supreme Fall/Winter 2016 capsule modeled by Kiko Mizuhara.
Born in Tokyo in 1940, Araki’s work is borderline pornographic — women in sexualized situations, including Kinbaku or Japanese bondage art, is the photographer’s signature aesthetic. The photographer toned down the sex with G-Dragon and the result is an intimate black-and-white portrait.
